Moo Sahara attracted good support when scoring here a month ago and with further improvement almost guaranteed she could be making her handicap debut off a lenient mark. HEAVY WEIGHT had only shown glimmers of ability before a much improved run here in September where he battled on strongly to beat Lord Kenmare. He looks a typical Jim Bolger improver and can go in again with Ronan Whelan's claim a bonus. The Fox Tully hasn't shown much on this surface but has been in cracking form on Turf and can carry his big weight with distinction while Atmospheric High has to come into the reckoning on her recent form on the surface which includes a victory over the C&D. Emotional Dream has never run on the all-weather but has some decent form on Turf and comes into the reckoning.
